Poppies and Happy New Year 25

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, December 27, 2015 @ 12:43 AM | , , , ,


Hi! I hope you are enjoying the holiday season! I've been having fun learning various paintbrush strokes as I explore the oil painting world. This art journal page was inspired by a Nancy Medina how to video that I received as a Christmas gift from my sweet husband ~ Scott :) I'm just a few strokes away from tackling a canvas!




I also have a rather clean and simple Happy New Year card to share featuring a star shaped shaker full of shimmery sequins and glass glitter:

I'm joining along with the following challenges, for sketch inspiration, Freshly Made Sketches:
The Friday Mashup for theme (New Year) and color (black, silver and gold):
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have day/night!
Be Sweet ;)

Your poppies are so gorgeous. I think you're ready for that canvas. I like the idea of a shaker card for New Year's wishes. We always need to "shake things up a bit" at the beginning of a new year, don't we?
